sunday rob talked about the race in ohio. let's listen. >> mentioned the 2.3% in obama's favor. that is because the polls are closing. the latest was this morning showing the race is a dead heat. i feel like the momentum is on our side. i've been at six rallies the last week and a dozen centers around the state and the energy is on our side this year. it's interesting to watch. we were down five or ten points before the debate. after the debate we're dead even and it's moving our way. host: that was on fox yesterday. and here is a story on analysis. it looks at key battleground states. the "washington journal" is taking a look at a number of battleground states this month as we head into the election. later this month we'll look into ohio and later colorado. we'll take one more call from the democrats line. caller: everything is shut down in new york city but i have to make three big points. number one for me is we should not politicized weather t. president, senators, congress, nobody is responsible for the weather, that's number one. so i'm surprised that gove nor went out th

contested. so there is a potential firewall for president obama if you look at ohio and wisconsin and nevada and iowa but it's only potential because all those states are very close. so we're seeing a pretty fears republican effort as well to flip wisconsin. that would have a dramatic impact on the electoral mass if they can take a state and flip it. and we're seeing a flurry of candidate visits next week. president obama will be here tuesday and paul ryan will be here wednesday. how much of the ect of this election comes from the ripple effect of the recall of governor walker? guest: i think there's been an interesting debate about what the recall told us about the presidential election. you can overstate the implications in some ways. a recall is a pretty extraordinary event and it was pretty clear in the recall fight that some voters were voting against the recall process. they didn't think it was appropriate. so you actually had in the exit poll in the recall in june. you had between 15 and 20% of the people that voted for republican scott walker in the recall fight said they favored pre
elections. host: pennsylvania -- 20 electoral votes. in 2008, barack obama won by 10%. unemployment in the state is nearing what we have nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting a lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes -- was so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground in pennsylvania, at least the moment? guest: the essential difference is that ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats of done well as they have captured the suburbs of our state in these last presidential elections in recent years. that has been the defining difference -- you have the big swath of in the middle, of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area. obviously the cleveland area in the northeastern part of the state is democratic. the cincinnati part in the southwest is more republican. ohio has a larger pool of the swing voters, if you will, and more evenly balanced between the democratic and
to be on election day. host: what about ohio and the back-and-forth about this ad that romney put on the air in ohio and the headlines this morning in the "new york times, two american of all motorists -- two american automakers rebut claims by romney? guest: they are trying to undermine president obama's mrs. mara automobile bailout was great for the state of ohio. that has proven to be a very strong message for president, something that has gotten him some support from voters that he normally would not do well with in some parts of the country, the white working-class voters, specifically in northeastern ohio, those workers are the ones who benefit from the automobile companies the most. so the republicans need to make it known to other ohio voters that, automobile bailout was not great for the state and did not do everything it possibly could. the advertisement their money is based on a bloomberg report and has since been corrected. it's not good for the campaign majore the ceo's of two car companies saying the claim is not true and we're not going to go build jeeps in china or ship jobs overseas

been out stumping for mitt romney. you have been in ohio, which is a state pivotal for the upcoming election. many people talk about it as the state that may decide the election. some say obama has the lead to a bear. the jobs picture is improving their. how do you think things are going there for governor romney? do you think it is possible he could win o hi a? >> i may two trips to ohio -- the think it is possible for him to win ohio? >> i made two trips to ohio. there is a wave of taking over state house state senate and state legislatures. you hampshire is the same way. they have 2/3 of the senate and 2/3 of the house is republican. in ohio, kasich wins by a couple of points, but they take over the state house and the state senate. a win 10 out of 18 congressional seats. we are projecting things, you cannot go from 2008 and 2010 and say we are went back to 2008 before we get to 2012. it is a direct line from 2010 to get to 2012. of the polls are underestimating where we will be. my prediction is that this will be 1918. this will be an election that was projected to be close. --
electoral votes. obama won by 10 percentage points. unemployment is mirroring what we have nationwide, 8.2%. neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with their 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes ohio more of a battleground than pennsylvania at the moment? guest: the essential differences ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to either vote republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the recent democrats have done well is because they have captured the suburbs in our state in the recent presidential elections which has been the defining difference. in the middle of ohio and columbus, that is a battleground. there, obviously with cleveland, but in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and cincinnati and out west be more republican. ohio just has a larger pool of these swing voters, if you will, and are more evenly balanced between the democratic and republican regions of the state. pennsylvania has a huge portion of moderate independent-minded voters and they

states. they hold the key to the election. for those who think romney will carry ohio, maybe they are right, but we don't see it that way. if we have that leaning obama. we shall see on monday whether any of them slip. we are monitoring them on an hourly basis. we are looking to the jobs report on friday. it may be the last piece of new information that could affect the election. host: any fallout or benefit from hurricane sandy for the candidates? guest: i think it's becoming clear that this has been a plus for president obama. how big, we will see. if you are the incumbents and you're in a tough race, what do you want to do? you want to look presidential. that's a great advantage of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at le
swing states, those numbers have been the same way. in colorado our latest polling shows barack obama down by four points. these numbers are moving in similar fashion across most of the states, with one big exception, ohio. in a high of the numbers show that it is 48-48. there is great enthusiasm from republican voters across the country. the democrats appear to have a stronger ground game and we are seeing that especially in ohio. before we get into all of that, we have two guests and they've both say they have said things they regret they have informed me that is not accurate. governor rendell is someone who speaks his mind freely on nbc and obviously served as governor of the great state of pennsylvania. i want to start by asking them about their home states. can mitt romney win? >> i would say yes the pennsylvania is in play. and i would say that it is probably the best bellwether of what happened over the last three weeks. the their campaign is particularly active in a pennsylvania. they have not been running many television ads because most campaigns thought it was going to be i
. in the last hours of this campaign, they have become truly desperate. i came from ohio -- they are running an ad in ohio and the following -- this is the god's truth. the ad they are running says the following -- it says that barack obama bankrupting the automobile industry so that it could be sold to the italians -- i do not know they have against the italians -- sold the italians so they could offshore to china. that is what they are saying -- i am not making this up. ladies and gentlemen, here is the cynical part. just imagine, your from the upper midwest, my state is delaware, which was one of the biggest automobile producing states in the country. after all those guys and families have been through, hard-working folks working their whole lives, through no fault of the run because of the policies of the last administration in the last year before got elected, 400,000 automobile jobs lost. here is what is more important -- 400,000 people dropping out of the middle-class. 400,000, and all the folks associated with them seeing their dream shattered. my dad, when we had to move from scrant
a question. i am a proud democrats so i am pro-barack obama. and a lot of his early voting on the democrat side, there are a lot of voters that normally would not vote on election day. is that why he is getting a big push in ohio and other states? they might have made an effort to locate first-time voters and voters that normally would not vote on election day. is this not true? i want to make a comment after you are done. guest: so far, where we have party registration, there are a good number of democrats who have voted already. the polls are showing that obama is leading the early boat much like he did in 2008. that is an aberration from our part -- previous count. from previous elections before the 2008, typically, republicans won the early voting. we have had such a high volume now and the obama campaign is encouraging their supporters to vote early. we have seen a change in behavior when campaigns can take advantage of early voting to encourage their supporters and mobilize them over a longer period of time. that is was going on on the democrat side. if you look at the numbers, there

that the obama campaign was relying on to get the voters out to the polls. you also argue that mitt romney is the one who has ground to make up in a crucial swing states, like ohio and virginia. it will make it difficult for him. right now it is hard to tell whose campaign is going to be most affected. host: early voting, are you looking at how the race to get those votes in the bank before election day rolls around might be impacted? caller: we are. most of the states do not have early voting. pennsylvania, for example, does not have early voting. virginia does not allow it unless you have a special exception that allows you to vote absentee before the election. ohio does have early voting, of course. north carolina, which is an early casualty of hurricane sandy, has early voting. the question of just, basically, which ones are going to be affected most, it is hard to say. maryland suspended early voting today. and the other hand, that is a safely blue state, so that will probably not impact the outcome. host: jody rights in -- host: are the campaign's looking at what kind of impact of th
